I was a Grauman's virgin until I was snowed into LA this week and called Paramount and begged to catch Tuesday's premiere of Project Almanac. Gotham ran my review and LA confidential picked it up. I was talking to Michael Bay and the premiere was about to start and the handler was starring daggers at me, and I finally had to tell him, "Gee, you better get inside or she's going to kill me."
Love that LA Confidential picked up my SAG weekend reporting for Gotham. See link below.
SAG winner Julianne Moore runs into Edie Redmayne behind the scenes. She played his mom in Savage Grace and they even took a bath together on camera. . . . PGAs, EW fete at Chateau Marmont. . . oh, and I got snowed in for a couple of extra days, merci Juno. . .
Yeah, it tends to perk up an evening if Matthew McConaughey or Katherine Heigl is seated at the next table. If you can play it cool and not ask to snap a photo, you too, can feel like a Hollywood insider--all right, all right all right. So where do they eat? We asked at People's Choice Awards, the Golden Globes and at the Weinstein, HBO, and NBC afterfetes.
Jude Law in Black Sea, Julianne Moore honored, and The Casting Society Awards
Julianne Moore was honored by the Museum of the Moving Image on Tuesday, Jude Law told us about his role that took place in an old Russian sub on Weds, and and on Thursday, the stars came out for the Casting Agent Artios Awards. My story for Gotham on . . .
Julianne Moore is on the road to Oscar, hopefully. She took the Globe on Sunday and the Critics Choice award in LA last night. And is now Oscar nominated for her astonishing role as a victim of early onset Alzheimer's in Still Alice. Also saw a cute movie called Loitering With Intent. If you've ever wanted to write a script, this is a madcap depiction of all the stuff that can go wrong. . . my story for Gotham.
Before I left for the Globes, I covered the Critics Circle Awards in NYC, and (night before I left), National Board of Review (almost as starry as the Globes). My story for Gotham magazine. Wow is the food fun at TAO Downtown . . . .
Attended People's Choice Awards, W and Hugo Boss fete, Audi Golden Globes party, BAFTA tea, Art of Elysium Heaven gala, Globes, HBO, Weinstein, and NBC Universal fetes in LA. FYI, at his after party, Harvey Weinstein mentioned that at his table during the Globes, he was kidding Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightly that they had done a season of Downton that never aired. Cumberbatch kidded that yes, they had been fired..
